Late last week, something changed in Firefox browser. I used to download csv files and Firefox would open them with the option to save as an excel file. Now it does not. I have to save it as csv then convert it to excel. It also doesn't seem to save my settings on the website I'm downloading from - I always have to manipulate the settings before downloading. It is a huge headache and I have resorted to using Chrome instead.

How does one specify which program opens a .zip file after it is downloaded?

Presently, the download functions properly, but when I click on the file, VLC media player opens; have no idea why; how can I specify 7-zip File Manager instead?

Thank you. Appreciate.

I'm buying a new computer and I'm wondering is there a method/procedure that I can use to transfer the entire FF browser including settings, extensions, bookmarks, and passwords without having to reinstall all those items individually? I know I can save and import bookmarks but what about everything else? I look forward to anyone comments. Thanks

I've been using Firefox ESR for some years. Now I would like to know the best way to use and try the "normal" version of Firefox. Can I install it without uninstall ESR? Or must I do a clean install of Firefox after getting rid of ESR? If this is the case, what must I do to keep my profile, bookmarks, etc?

Hi there!

I'm attempting to migrate my Firefox (106.0.3) profile from the Linux Mint V20.3 on one SSD to a new installation of Linux Mint V21 on a separate SSD. I'm using the information supplied on this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

Step 4, under Backing up your profile says: Right-click on your profile folder (e.g. xxxxxxxx.default), and select Copy.

This folder, qspfoqtl.default, contains 1 file, named times.json, the contents of which are:

{ "created": 1618792039414, "firstUse": null }

Clearly, not my Firefox profile.

There is, however, a folder named nnob5aww.default-release that contains a bunch of directories and files (505.4MB) with names like bookmarkbackups, browser-extension-data... storage, weave.

Is this documentation incorrect as of this release of Firefox? And, should I be using the nnob5aww.default-release folder as the profile? I'm a little confused. (Most often, I'm a lot confused.) Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

- Ralph

52.9.0esr is claimed to be the last version for XP. Unfortunately it is not quite true. It is for XP SP2 ONLY. Trying to install on SP3 ends with the message that SP2 is required. IMO the installer is simply too strict on demanding exact version of SP ! https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/52.9.0/system-requirements/

I went through the list of versions (thanks Mozilla that they all are still available!) and found that the last version I can install is... version... 12.0b6. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/12.0/system-requirements/

And indeed I installed 12.0b6 successfully but I would like to install 52.9.

We just bought a new HP computer with Windows 11 and I'm trying to install Firefox. I d/l the file from the Mozilla website, clicked on the file that d/l and the installation begins. The installation progresses until the bar indicates it's over 1/2 way done. Then all of a sudden the screen changes to show a blank tab name and the file area says something about a Google search. What am I supposed to do with this page since I don't know what I'm supposed to search for. I don't see a way to get back to the installation page. I just want to install Firefox so why all this runaround without an installation?

Windows 10 - 22 H2 - All updates applied AMD Ryzen 7950x + DDR5 64GB RAM + 3090 RTX GPU + Plenty of Disk Space Firefox

Hi,

To get myself off MS Edge (as its Chromium based), I've come back to FF. But after I tried installing firefox standard and even the Extended Support Release I can not run it for the first time - I get this error

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

I've followed the advice in the help pages, but it hasnt fixed the issue

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles#w_start-the-profile-manager-when-firefox-is-closed

The same happens when I run

firefox -p

The firefox App Data folder contains no profile file at all....

I've tried uininstalling and wiping all files, and I wanted to try an old versions BUT the link on the page is dead

Do I have some service not running that this relies on ?

Starting today, I went to download a .pdf file to open automatically with Adobe Acrobat as I usually do. However, this time I got a pop-up from Microsoft Word stating, "Word will now convert your PDF to an editable Word document. This may take a while. The resulting Word document will be optimized to allow you to edit the text, so it might not look exactly like the original PDF, especially if the original file contained lots of graphics."

I went to Settings - General - Applications, went down Contents list to Portable Document Format (PDF), and tried the various settings under the Action column, to include "Save File," "Always Ask," "Use Acrobat Adobe 2020." None of these worked or made any difference. I open numerous .pdf files every day and I need to be able to just click on them in the website and have them open in my Adobe Acrobat program - as they have up until today. What do I have to do to fix this? I am using Version 102.0.1 (64-bit).

Hi there.

This is my first post so bare with me.  :-)

We are deploying the 32-bit version of the Firefox Browser to 4 700 clients and the 64-bit version to only 8 clients; all clients on a 64-bit Windows 10 environment. We will migrate to Windows 11 22H2 this year. The manager for the 8 clients says he wants the 64-bits version just because it's...64-bits. No other reason.

I've read that the 64-bit version can not handle Java, Media Players like VLC and mayby some other plugins. Is that still so?

What is the main reason TODAY for using 64-bit Firefox Browser instead of 32-bit, except for the use of 4 GB+ RAM?

I'm stetting up a testing environment. It's a closed environment with no access to the Internet when it's in use.

The environment is launched from AWS and consists of an Ubuntu 18 desktop and a Ubuntu Server running Apache. The desktop is able to successfully load the website, but with a cert error that the certificate isn't trusted.

When the Ubuntu Desktop launches, it has a fresh install of Firefox, and therefore all the directories in the users home folder are not yet setup for Firefox, including the database where the root CAs are stored.

I'm am able to add the Root CA certificate into the Firefox cert database AFTER the machine fully boots and I run Firefox for the first time. I'm using the 'certutil' package to do this. After I load Firefox, then add the root CA certificate using certutil, I'm able to load the website without error.

I need to add this certificate to the database with the startup shell script for the machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Here's the commands I'm using:

  1. copy the CA cert into firefox

export ffcerts=`ls /home/testuser/.mozilla/firefox/ | grep default-release` sudo certutil -A -n "testcert" -t "TC,," -i /home/testuser/certificates/testcertCA.pem -d sql:/home/testuser/.mozilla/firefox/$ffcerts

These commands work perfectly after Firefox is run for the first time. I've even tried adding 'Firefox' (with several different switches) into my startup script without success.

I've always used the "Always ask you where to save files" option when downloading. Recently (beginning of April 2022), files go directly to the Downloads folder. The "Always ask" option is still selected in Settings.

I've tried un-selecting and re-selecting, restarting Firefox, restarting my computer - basically every iteration of 'turn it off and on again' that I can think of.
